If you’ve been following me for a while you might have worked out my obsession with a painted pout. A classic red lip complements any outfit which is why I just had to give Lancome’s Rouge In Love Lipcolours a go!
This was also part of the recent beauty haul I featured on Instagram (follow me here pretty please!) which I have been eagerly waiting to dive right into. I purchased three different reds from this range:
- 340B Rose Boudoir (coral with a pinkish hue)
- 159B Rouge In love (candy apple red, the brightest of the three!)
- 163M Dans Ses Bras (A natural red with slight plum undertones)
- High potency colour and shine
- Six hours long wear
- Featherlight texture for comfort
The shades are classified into three categories: Jolis Martins for daytime, Boudoir Time for cocktail hour and Tonight Is My Time for night.
Note the term lipcolour. This is a cross between a lipstick and a gloss. It’s not opaque like a traditional lippie that gives off that tattooed effect instead the colours are fresh with a translucent quality.
So to the good news. As moisturising as a balm with a creamy light texture, the colours are playful yet stunning. Because it allows the natural colour of your lips to come through, it complements most skin tones.
The bad news? Six hours is a bit of a strong claim. While the gloss didn’t last long, the colour faded evenly through meals leaving a natural stained effect over the course of a few hours. I didn’t mind this though as I quite liked reapplying it to soothe chapped lips throughout the day. For me, it’s not one for a big night out as I prefer a strong, bold lip for these occasions.
The Lancome Rouge In Love Lipcolour however is perfect for a more casual setting and I officially declare it my new everyday lipcolour!
